FAQ for Undies

How can I tell my size?

I believe they tend to run small. Men's pairs are sized by waistband and from 25" to 32" I tend to call small. Between that and 35" I think is medium and 36" or more is large. For women, I think of an extra small as a kid or tween size tush, or a really slender lady. Small is the size 0-8 range. Medium 10-12, and large is 14" and up. Extra large is like the queen sizing on tights. Remember, custom undies for your body is possible, it's the same process, just takes more time to take measurements.

Do you want my old shirts?

Heck yah! If they are gently worn, clean, and interesting, I definitely want them. If you'd like custom undies, baby clothes, or a skirt made out of your own shirts, I can do that too. Contact me about what you have in mind and we'll figure it out.

How do I pay for them?

Indiemade, the ecommerce platform for this website, uses PayPal as a payment processor. So you may pay with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover; or by using your PayPal balance. Up & Undies never even sees your credit card number; PayPal just tells us that you've paid and we ship you your stuff. You don't need a PayPal account to buy my undies. Also, I have a Venmo account that's associated with my email address, which is my first name, Ardis, and the extension of this website.

How do I care for them?

They are made of secondhand T-shirts and knits, so just wash and dry them as you would for your T shirts. You'll notice that since they don't have fancy lycra fibers, they might seem loose after a full day of wear. But, just like your favorite jeans, they'll snap right back after a good wash and run in the dryer.
As the crafter, I'm keen to know how they fit, or if you have design recommendations. I'm still happily wearing all the pairs I've made, and after several washes, I can attest to their durability.
